All in the Family: Targeting Accommodation & Relationship Stress in OCD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

OCD is an interpersonal phenomenon that impacts more than the one who 'has' OCD. Relationships themselves can impact OCD through two avenues: symptom accommodation and relational distress/conflict. Both symptom accommodation and relational conflict are associated with poorer treatment outcomes, such as premature discontinuation of ERP and symptom relapse. Attendees in this workshop will gain a better understanding of their role in the maladaptive behavioral cycle of OCD and develop skills to lessen the impact of this pattern on the client's treatment and their own relationship satisfaction.
